iVillage Women "Appalled" By Lance Armstrong!

We polled our iVillage community to see how they felt after Lance Armstrong's Oprah interview

Lance Armstrong’s interview with Oprah Winfrey is all everyone seems to be talking about today, so we decided to ask our readers how they felt about the disgraced cyclist’s confession. We’re not impressed with his egregiously late-in-the-game admission of guilt -- and neither is the iVillage community! Here’s a look what some of our members had to say.

“I was appalled at how blasé he came across in Oprah’s interview. I mean, really... he didn’t just deny [it] for years, he verbally and legally attacked people and tried to ruin lives! And he supposedly counted a lot of those people as friends ... and a simple apology is supposed to charm them (and us) now? I don’t think so.” -- Dani_n_haileys_mom

“He doesn't get any points for coming clean now. His credibility was shot when the doping claims came up and he denied them vehemently. That would have been a more honorable time to come out with this.” -- Gymrat76

“He is looking for the easy way out and he doesn't deserve it in my opinion. He should have to give back all his awards including every last penny. His name forever should [be] used as a great example of self-absorption, greed, selfishness, poor sportsmanship, bullying, envy, strife, and grief.” -- Piananana

“Lance should just go away ... quietly... instead, his incredible narcissism is going to lead to his ultimate destruction.” -- Deenasdad

“I am tired of hearing about it and wish he would step out of the limelight, stop getting glorified in the media for ‘at least admitting it’ and let the news go on about truly important issues.” -- Sixinchblackheels

“You might not like his attitude or behavior, but you can't forget what Livestrong has done for cancer research. It wouldn't have happened if he didn't win so many tours,” -- Cookie_doh

“I think it's one thing to choose to destroy your body; it's another to destroy other people's reputation and coerce them to destroy their bodies. He's no better than a drug dealer. What surprises me is the amount of support he still has. I don't think steroids/PEDs are the issue -- it's how he chose to deal with the aftermath that is the problem. The apology? Ulterior motive written all over it.” -- Jeanwl
